Maritime Icon Burns

The Cutty Sark, one of the world’s most famous ships, suffered significant damage in a fire while it was in drydock undergoing restortation.

I have always enjoyed visiting the Cutty Sark at the National Maritime Museum and Royal Observatory in Greenwich, England. More than just a ship, she was a national and international icon. She is known to millions around the world and she has educated countless vistors over her many years as museum ship. She is truly one of the most popular ambassador’s of maritme heritage and culture. She represents commerce and adventure at sea.

Early reports say there are suspicous origins to the fire but ship officials beleive that she will be able to be restored to her role as a martime museum.

Here is a link with several videos.
